T-Mobile Samsung Behold II review

 

We review the Samsung Behold II, T-Mobile's fourth Android-powered smartphone

Sleek, well-made hardware ; Responsive UI ; Vivid AMOLED display

Priced too high ; Only 200MB of internal memory

Simply put, the Samsung Behold II is a fantastic full touchscreen Android phone that T-Mobile has priced right out of contention for most. Knock $80-$100 off the price tag and we're looking at one of the best Android-powered handsets on the market. At...

Review: Samsung Behold II

 

Another Android phone, another needless skin distorting the otherwise awesome OS.

An all-around reliable phone with fantastic talk time of 4 hours and 52 minutes. Mini-USB port makes file transfers a cinch. Feels surprisingly light at 4.2 ounces. Easy-to-use D-pad makes a decent alternative to touchscreen navigation. Ships with 2-GB...

Menus are confusing, inconsistent and ugly. Unlock key is far too recessed to be of practical use. Touchscreen seems to attract more fingerprints than competitors. No good can come of that spinning cube

Samsung Behold II Review

 

Priced at $229, the Samsung Behold II is the most expensive Android phone on T-Mobile, and it's far from the best. It doesn't offer the type of social network integration that other Android phones offer, such as the Sprint HTC Hero and T-Mobile...

Beautiful AMOLED display, Unique industrial design, Good Web browsing speeds

Expensive, Slow UI, TouchWiz makes Android less intuitive, No social networking/address book integration

Samsung Behold II SGH-t939 (T-Mobile)

 

Samsung's Behold II levels up to smartphone status, but the company's TouchWiz user interface makes a mess of Android.

Sharp, responsive touch screen. 5-megapixel camera. Good battery life.

Sluggish. Buggy. Samsung's TouchWiz UI is a pointless disaster. Yet another forked Android build—this time for no reason.

Camera and Conclusions The 5-megapixel camera includes auto-focus and an LED flash. The hardware is similar to the original Behold, though the software is completely different. Here, Samsung's improvements helped, as it now functions like a proper...

Samsung Behold II (T-Mobile) review: Samsung Behold II (T-Mobile)

 

First announced at CTIA Fall 2009 , the Samsung Behold II is Samsung's second Android device for the U.S. market (the Samsung Moment being the first) and T-Mobile's fourth Android offering. Based on the Samsung Galaxy Lite , the Behold II tries to set...

The Samsung Behold II boasts a vibrant AMOLED capacitive touch screen. The smartphone includes more-robust multimedia capabilities, and its 5-megapixel camera takes excellent pictures. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support are all included.

The phone is expensive, especially compared with the competition. The TouchWiz interface isn't all that useful. Runs Android 1.5.

Of all the Android devices, the Samsung Behold II offers some of the most powerful multimedia features, but its high price tag is a major turnoff.

Samsung Behold II

 

The Samsung Behold II ($230 with a two-year T-Mobile contract; price as of 11/12/09) smartphone is the latest device to join T-Mobile's growing army of Android phones, which includes the T-Mobile G1, the T-Mobile myTouch 3G, and the Motorola Cliq....

Excellent camera ; Stunning AMOLED display

TouchWiz feels a bit cluttered ; On the expensive side

With a gorgeous AMOLED display and an excellent camera, the pricey Samsung Behold II will appeal to multimedia junkies with deep pockets.

Samsung Behold II T939 Review

 

Not too often do we see successor devices gaining much more attention than their original predecessors, but the Samsung Behold II T939 has a larger following thanks to its connection with Android. The original handset debuted less than a year ago with...

Samsung's Android phone has excellent display, sluggish interface

 

The Samsung Behold II is a versatile multimedia smartphone using Google's Android 1.5 operating system. The phone has a number of strong selling points, including a razor-sharp 5-megapixel camera and a brilliant 3.2-inch AMOLED (active matrix...

Brilliant display, sharp 5-megapixel camera, capable music player

Sluggish user interface, cramped keyboard

Samsung Behold II for T-Mobile

 

The Samsung Behold II is the second Android phone from the manufacturer. It offers T-Mobile users an excellent display that works well with its multimedia features. It also offers quad-band world roaming for world travelers and a host of other...

Another useful feature on the phone that should be heavily used by road trip enthusiasts and travelers is its integrated GPS. If you want actual voice-guided directions you will have to subscribe to the TeleNav service for a monthly fee. Otherwise,...

Samsung Behold II Review - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

Despite the name, the Behold II has little in common with Samsung's original Behold. T-Mobile likes to re-use names to a fault, and while the original Behold was a TouchWiz feature phone, the Behold II is an Android smartphone. The similarity lies in...

Wonderful AMOLED capacitive touch screen, solid build, feels good in the hand. Very good camera, good GPS and WiFi for fast data when 3G isn't available ;

Sluggish at times, TouchWiz hinders more than it helps

We love Android and we adore Samsung's vibrant AMOLED displays. But we could do with a little less TouchWiz on top of Android: it slows down the phone and it creates confusing redundant functionality. But if you're a Samsung feature phone user...
